A Week In Music - Classic Blues From Ben Harper And Charlie Musselwhite, Raunchy Videos From The Weeknd, Jay Z And Justin Timberlake, Get Up Close And Personal With Rihanna In 'Stay'

Albums Of Note... Get Up! pairs modern blues idol and expert slide guitarist Ben Harper with harmonica legend Charlie Musselwhite. Aiming for blues authenticity, that’s exactly what Ben and Charlie achieve here. The pair of talented blues musicians fly in the face of modernity and instead strive to recreate the dusky glamour of a Chicago blues club.

In general, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite have delivered a strong, yet candid and fun blues album. This album really does not care that it is 2013, and why should it? Each of the ten songs contains something of merit. Both musicians involved are fairly prolific but this collection will doubtlessly shoot to the high end of the fans favourites in no time at all.”

Ben Harper With Charlie Musselwhite - Get Up! Album Review


Modern Rock's most soulful voice meets blues hero to go back to basics with a charming blues collaboration.

Ben Harper with Charlie Musselwhite, Get Up! Review

Nostalgia is big business in music these days. Whether it is bands 'getting the old gang back together' and touring up and down the country for one last dip into their fans' pockets, Dave Grohl's Sound City movie or ITV's Big Reunion, bands and artists are constantly celebrating the past, either with pure honesty or cynical money-grabbing intentions. The question is, how far back can you go? Well, in the case of Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, you can go all the way back to what was arguably the birth of modern rock music: the blues.

The pairing of Harper and Musselwhite should not really come as much of a surprise. Over twenty odd years hovering just outside the mainstream, Harper has never been afraid of the more basic, traditional sound of the blues and his slide guitar playing is certainly up there with the best. Musselwhite on the other hand, is something of a blues harmonica legend, having been making music since the 60s. There is probably nobody of a higher pedigree than Charlie Musselwhite to accompany Ben Harper on this outing.
